Join Our Team

Since opening our doors in 1996, A Better Way has become one of the leading organizations in the Bay Area that provides services to children in foster care or at risk of entering foster care. A Better Way provides foster-adoption services, parent advocacy, behavioral health services, and training.

Our team has been the cornerstone of our success, and a passion for helping the community of children in foster care both drives and unites us. A Better Way reflects the rich cultural community of the clients we serve: we embrace multi-cultural and cross-cultural diversity, and provide services in a variety of languages, including English, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Russian and Vietnamese. 

We believe in an innovative, integrative service model, and in joining the team, you will help enrich and support these practices to assist families with their mental health, parenting skills, housing and other basic needs, providing them with the necessary resources to reach their desired goals.
